If you’re as obsessed with Skittles as I am, you know there’s no bad way to eat them. From adding them to popcorn (it’s delicious, trust me) to putting them in cookies or fudge to just snacking on them straight out of the bag, the fruity candy always hits the spot. In fact, the flavors are so good that they also work in cocktail form! If you’re still not sold, let me introduce you to this Strawberry Skittles Bomb Daiquiri.
The perfect drink for lounging by the pool during the summer, to summon warmer weather in the winter, or as a just-because treat, you’ll want to make this daiquiri on every day that ends in y. It’s easy, too: just combine two flavors of rum, a strawberry mixer, and Skittles, and you have one of the best frozen drinks you’ll ever try. It’s sweet but not so sweet that you could only have a few sips — I’m talking finishing a glass very quickly and asking for more. I personally love how it takes me back to my childhood but still has an adults-only twist. And the addition of Skittle pieces to the final drink is the perfect finishing touch. Enjoy!
